Located in the heart of "Siouxland" in beautiful Dakota Dunes, South Dakota our CBS and Fox stations serve a 3 state area including South Dakota, Iowa and Nebraska. This convergence of 3 states brings with it great opportunity as well as great challenges. A political hotbed, mainly due to Iowa, we have a thriving news operation under the leadership of Aaron Weiss, News Director, that produces a 2 hour morning show, Sunrise News – a 5PM newscast on KMEG, a 9PM prime time newscast on Fox and a 10PM newscast on KMEG.
We have invested heavily in our news infrastructure in ENG, internal software, new cameras, edit bays and a non-linear project all designed to streamline our newsroom workflows and allow for more time to be dedicated to improved show content. In April of 2012 we will launch new news graphics and news music beds. Our ability to accomplish this "makeover" is due in no small part to the assistance of our sister stations in Fresno who have incredible assets in the graphics area. This is business as usual at Titan – "all for one and one for all". The teamwork and inter-station communication and assistance is incredible and allows all Titan stations to excel in our different markets in ways we could not do otherwise.
Our stations are housed in a state of the art stand alone building that is affectionately referred to inside the company as the "Taj Majal". Employing 55 hard working dedicated people, our stations are dedicated to the different communities we serve and are involved in a deep and fundamental way with public service and community events.
Our stations are also consistently high level revenue performers under the leadership of a solid sales management team and account executives who roll up their sleeves and get it done every day. We are in the process of launching a mobile weather app and revising our plan of attack for e-media sales that will involve multiple levels of marketing opportunities for local businesses and expand the revenue base of our two television stations.
We deliver to our viewers the very best in syndicated programming with shows like "Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune" on KMEG and "Judge Judy", "The Big Bang Theory", "Two and a Half Men" and "30 Rock" on Fox 44. Our Creative Services team is second to none in the quality of the promotional spots they produce and the incredible job they do for local clients on their commercials. We are easily the best production team in the market by a wide margin.
We broadcast from atop a 2,000 foot tower putting out 1 million watts of radiated power. An incredibly strong signal. Due to the large geographic area we cover we also have several translators throughout the market that are already digital or being converted now. As an example we are currently the only Sioux City stations delivering digital signals in Norfolk, Nebraska off of our translators.
The forward thinking and supportive nature of our Corporate leaders helps us to stay ahead of the competition. Their deep and experienced background in station operations provides leadership that keeps us all performing at a high level every single day. Whether it's an additional CapEx need or a sales initiative that is guaranteed to reap rewards, working with a company like Titan makes us all better at what we do as individuals. You can't ask for more than that!
